John Palassis from Vision West is presenting an educational seminar at Southern Regional Congress worth three CPD points on the importance of ultra-widefield imaging as a part of a comprehensive examination.

John’s seminar “Ultra-widefield: Ultra Important” is sponsored by Optos and is on at 9am Saturday 26 May in Theatre 2 at the Pullman Mercure Hotel, Albert Park.

Attendees will gain three CPD points and learn the importance of ultra-widefield imaging as a part of a comprehensive examination, plus fundus autofluorescence and analysing pathology to decide to refer or not to refer.

John graduated from the University of New South Wales in 1987 with Honours in Bachelor of Optometry. He is a fellow of the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists.

His areas of interest include paediatric vision care, orthokeratology and keratoconus. John is the joint owner of Vision West, an independent practice in Karrinyup, Western Australia.

His seminar is sponsored by Optos. Optos’ non-mydriatic ultra-widefield technology provides eye-care professionals with detailed 200 degree high resolution retinal images in less than half a second.
